In a very quiet area, clean, equipped with hairdryer drinking bottle water provided every day, but no tea/ coffee facilities in room. The bathroom is ok but a little licks of water. Wonderful service staff members couldn’t do enough for you always with great smile. Will definitely go back again

Liked: Staff & service
The property claims its rooms to have lake view. They don't. Actually, the first night, they put me in a basement. 2nd night 2nd floor but still no lake view. I don't think anyone of their rooms have lake view. They shouldn't advertize wrongly like that. It is misleading. That being said, the staff tried to make up to the disappointment. They are very friendly and helpful.
